We will be leaving montezuma on Saturday and just want to get to monteverde as early as possible. Thanks for any help!! Safe travels...
There are 2 ways that I know of:
1) Get a shuttle from one of the tour agencies in Montezuma. This will take you direct to Monteverde but will cost you a bit of $$. Can't remember exactly how much though. $40 or $50 maybe; or
2) Get a bus to the ferry at Paquera (about 1000 colones I think...6:30am and 2:30pm), get the ferry over to Puntarenas (810 colones...every hour), and then get a bus from there to Monteverde (about 1200 colones I think).
I did this trip in reverse about 3 weeks ago. It was pretty simple, but when we got off the bus in Puntarenas we were in the centre of town so we had to walk to the ferry. Not a big deal, but you might want to look into where exactly the Puntarenas - Monteverde bus leaves. about 7 years ago
